India’s CNG market has been rising since fuel prices were hiked. People are going for after-market options while hoping to get factory-fitted systems as well. Although people have gone bizarre by fitting Thar & XUV700 with CNG kits, there are some upcoming CNG cars that people are looking forward to. Let’s take a look at the top 5 upcoming CNG cars in 2023:
Tata Nexon is one of the top sellers and most versatile products in the market. It is the only car to be offered with all available powertrains, and with an upcoming CNG version, it will fill all the boxes. It is available in petrol, diesel & electric versions with a huge list of features & tech.

Nexon is the best product from Tata, it has been roaring with sales numbers and is the highest-selling EV in India as well. Launching a CNG version will boost sales even more. It will be offered with the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox and might also get drive modes. The price will be slightly hiked by around ₹60,000, and it will be among the most affordable compact SUVs with a CNG version.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza
The second car on our list is the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. It used to rule the segment in the initial years but the sales slowly fell as the company did not update the car with the latest features. Maruti Suzuki launched the new generation Vitara Brezza into the market this year and started gaining its old position in the segment.

The naturally aspirated 1.5-litre engine, the hybrid tech, and the latest features at an affordable price make it among the best products in the market. As the company offers its sibling Ertiga a factory-fitted CNG kit, they might apply the same to this SUV and conquer even more markets in 2023.
Altroz is also among the top performers in the premium hatchback segment. It is a good car with both petrol & diesel powertrains and various trims with good fuel efficiency. The CNG version was also spied testing on our roads this year, hinting at a launch in 2023.
